The 18th Workshop on Economic Science with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents (WEHIA 2013) offers an opportunity to present the latest research on various aspects of the economy as a complex system made up of multiple heterogeneous interacting agents. Research from different domains, at the crossing of various disciplines – economics, psychology, sociology, computer sciences, engineering, physics - are useful for developing more satisfactory approaches to (macro) econometrics and (macro) economic theory.
These approaches have already brought some improvement in the understanding of problems facing the world economy, such as the financial crisis, segregation, unemployment and poverty, and the need for sustainable development. The workshop aims to make progress in understanding and solving them.
Workshop topics will cover research in all areas benefitting by models of interacting agents. Contributions with empirical applications will be also appreciated. The topics include, but are not limited to:
